Eggnog Coffee Creamer

Eggnog Coffee Creamer

Winter isn’t winter without hot beverages. I couldn’t make Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer and Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer without giving you an Eggnog version. Eggnog is one of my absolute favorite holiday flavors. If you love it like I do, you’ll love this simple creamer recipe flavored with creamy vanilla, spicy nutmeg, and rum extract. And, our hens have just started laying 3-4 beautiful fresh eggs every day, so I’d like to thank them for the lovely photo props.

Eggnog Coffee Creamer{GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED} – Congratulations to Giveaway Entry #862, Angie from Pennsylvania! 

To go along with your homemade coffee creamers, I am giving away one stunning Cuisinart 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Hot Water System just in time for Christmas. If you have coffee and tea drinkers in your home, this appliance is perfect for you – it makes hot water independent of the coffee side, so you can make hot chocolate or tea at the same time as coffee. Or you can brew your coffee and make hot water for your morning bowl of oatmeal simultaneously. Watch the handy dandy little product video here for more details.

This Giveaway closes on Wednesday, December 19 at 3p.m. Alaska time. The winner will be selected at random and contacted via email for their shipping address. The coffee maker will be shipped via Amazon Prime. To enter this Giveaway, please fill out the form below. This giveaway is sponsored exclusively by Alaska from Scratch.

Merry Christmas!

 

Eggnog Coffee Creamer

Yield: 3 cups creamer

Eggnog Coffee Creamer

Ingredients

  • 3/4c water
  • 3/4c sugar
  • 1t vanilla
  • 1t rum extract
  • 1t ground nutmeg*
  • 2c half and half

Instructions

  1. To a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water and the sugar. Stir until the mixture heats up and the sugar dissolves, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Measure 1 cup of the mixture, also known as simple syrup (save any remaining for another use or discard). To the 1 cup of simple syrup whisk in the vanilla, followed by the rum extract and nutmeg. Allow the mixture to cool 5-10 minutes and then add it to the 2c of half and half. Stir well.
  2. Keep in a sealed container (I use a Mason jar) in the refrigerator. Use as you would store-bought coffee creamer. Shake or stir before each use as the nutmeg will settle to the bottom.

Notes

*I almost always prefer freshly grated nutmeg, but in this case, I prefer ground nutmeg. If you would prefer to use freshly grated nutmeg, be sure and reduce the amount at least by half, as fresh nutmeg is stronger than ground.

You can always adjust homemade creamer to your preference. If you like your creamer less sweet, add more half and half until your perfect blend is reached. Or if you prefer it sweeter, add less half and half.

Hot Spiced Cider is always warming on a cold winter's night.

Love your blog!! Always love reading your posts and seeing "what the weather is up to" there. I have an uncle in Anchorage and I'm all the way back in Kentucky. Somehow, your blog makes me feel connected to him. Thanks for all the great recipes!

Julglog.  It's a Swedish recipe similar to mulled wine, only a lot stronger. It includes whiskey, wine, vodka, brandy, and special spices.  You simmer it covered, then remove the lid and flame the mixture.  It will definitely wwarm you up on a cold winter night.

EggNog was a rare treat as a child, so even as an adult I'm still excited to see it show up in the stores for the holidays.

My favorite hot holiday beverage is my homemade mulled cider with 3 juices (apple, cranberry, and pumpkin), 3 spices (cinnamon, clove, and allspice), and 3 add-ons (orange slices, maraschino cherries, and maple syrup or Rum, depending if I'm pregnant or not)...its the BEST!!

This is a tough one. I love hot cider, but I think Peppermint Mocha/hot chocolate would top the list.
